Last sun on the Thunersee

About the shot

Swiss winter can be mild at Thunersee lac side

Thunersee is a swiss lake between Thun and Interlaken.

Because it is still daylight, no need for a tripod. For this shot, a 16 mm directly aimed at the sun. I was fortunate to have the sun almost aligned.

The main difference between the sunset light and the sunrise one, is the temperature of the air and therefor you got different hotter tones event during winter days.

About the story


Water, oceans, seas and lakes.
Having the opportunity to live in the Leman area, it is a pleasure to visit, swim and paddle on it.

Switzerland count thousands of lakes and as many explorations and adventures. You have the big lakes such as the Leman, lake of Neuchatel or the one in Zurich or Interlaken.

Other lake and maybe the most mysterious ones, are the smaller mountain lakes. Some of them have incredibly bluish color. Other are darker.

Finally, there are the artificial lake, created by dams. These as well can be impressive specially because they are high in the mountains.

It is a pleasure to look on the map and then to go and discover the place.
